Weekend Looks: Fall/Winter Must-Haves

It has been some time since I did this kind of post. Decided to do this one on 3 different must-have items; the color opaque tights (yes! you are not limited to just the black), the metallic skinny jeans (gold), the bodycon dress...

Look One - Color Tights
1. Color Opaque Tights ( source )
2. White Chiffon Shirt ( source )
3. Slouchy Denim Shorts ( source )
4. Gold Necklace ( source )
5. Smoking Slipper - this one is from Foschini, not sure if they still have it.
6. Black Hobo Bag ( source )

Side Note: you can add a cardigan (elctric blue) with this if its chilly. If you are looking for a more dresed up look; you can replace the flats with a heel and wear a blazer (electric blue).

Look Two - Metallic Jeans

1. Metallic Jeans ( source )
2. Black Bodysuit ( source )
3. White Blazer ( source )
4. Nude Pumps ( source )
5. Chunky Pearl Bracelets ( source )
6. Black Clutch Bag ( source )

Side Note: this pairing is very chic, can also be done with a silver metallic jeans and instead of the blazer, wear a sweater.

Look Three - The Bodycon Dress

1. Bodycon Dress ( source )
2. Denim Jacket ( source )
3.Leopard Print Bootie ( source )
4.Brown Skinny Belt ( source )
5. Purple Clutch Bag ( source )
6.Statement Ring ( source )

Side Note: I just love the bodycon dress! And clearly the leopard print footwear. A black blazer would also work well here.

How To Wear: Brown Ankle Boots

OK! So today is not a boot kind of day! People who have been outside, tell me its very hot. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for me, I have a lot to do inside and will miss out on the sun/heat outside. I am not really a fan of the sun this time of he year anyway; I just want it to be cool/chilly/cold with no rain.

Today, I decided to dedicate my blog post to the Brown Ankle Boot, ankle boots are one of this season's must-haves and I prefer ankle boots to the long boots (absoltely nothing against the long boots of course)

This is a slouchy ankle boot in fau-suede, with a folded front and large belt strap. It's fitted with an almond toe, and has a 3.75 faux-stacked wood heel. Its available here

Style Item of Choice: Converse Sneakers

It is without a doubt that, if I were to choose between a flat shoe and a stiletto...I would absolutely go for the "flats"; even better if its a sneaker.

I love comfortable clothing, sometimes fashion and trends have nothing to do with it; as long as I feel good in what I am wearing. Not that I would wear "flats" for every occassion though (even though I secretly wish I could)

So Converse (some people call them Chucks or Chuck Taylors) are timeless and are styling them is up to you...whether you want to wear skinny jeans or a skirt...

The sneakers come in different colors and designs, some very creative and artistic I must say and it looks amazing.
